Welcome back! This week’s session is all about making your WPMS something sustainable. Tom, Taylor, and Amanda talk about the human side of creating a project that you genuinely enjoy working on, as well as some technical tips and tricks for maintaining and sustaining your WPMS.
Watch the session 3 video here:

☑️ For next week
We like checklists, so if you do too, here is your list to prepare for next week. These will be included at the bottom of each week’s post.
Try tracking the time you spend on your WPMS tasks. Maybe color code what tasks you enjoy most in this time and how much time you spend doing them; this can help you identify the areas of the work that bring you the most joy, and keep your project sustainable!
Conceptual: Identify what you’d like to track on your multisite and theorize where that lives. Can you find it in the database, the WP API, etc.? Bring this to office hours and share. Don’t feel like you have to solve it, just think through how you might figure it out!
